    People need a reality check here and stop acting like they're on top of the world.
    No one is behaving like they're on top of the world. We all need to get used to this happening because this is likely what will end up happening.

    as ridiculous as that is, djax still does have a trait he can depend on regardless of team or scheme; speed.

    cruz doesnt have that elite measurement trait, and while cruz is 5x the wr djax is (imo), in the FA market, traits like speed bc the highest priced commodities. look at the mike wallace situation...

    I didn't read the article but I thought Roanoke said 8 million was an educated guess by the NY Post. The Post isn't the most accurate paper and is known to sensationalize stories.

    I definitely wouldn't say Cruz excels mainly due to the scheme. He's the best route runner on the team and can shake a defender to get open unlike many other in the league. I rather have the skill set than a Mike Wallace/Desean Jackson type receiver.

    Reese won't overpay for anyone. Let's consider waiting for the actual details to leak out before we start chanting "Cruz Must Go."

    You don't overpay system players. The same people who are saying we should give Cruz ~10 million a year are probably the ones that were saying Steve Smith was irreplaceable.

    That article is entirely speculative, don't take it as fact. Cruz's market value would be in that range but who knows what his team is actually asking for.
